    well..the setttings for each account are like that..when you set up an account, there's an option to use the settings from your other account.

    so, you are experiencing exactly one of the 'benefits' of windows.

Sounds more like either you have a virus, or there's someone who has hacked into your laptop to delete them.

if you haven't run a virus scan, i'd say do it now. if it doesn't turn up anything, then try a firewall and check for spyware as well.

I need to know how to get the guess acount password for an acer aspire 5050


Reset password > Possible.
'Get password' > Not possible. Native OS design does not provide this function

Quick fix: If you can login as 'guest', do so. Once done, press CTRL +
ALT + DEL and then click 'change password'. Follow subsequent steps. This becomes the account password.

Assuming you cannot login in with 'guest', do so with an account that has administrative rights.

Before proceeding, remember a key principle. To keep protected information secure, after a password is reset on a local user account, Certain information is no longer accessible, including the following:
  • E-mail that is encrypted with the user's public key
  • Internet passwords that are saved on the computer
  • Files that the user has encrypted
Now that we got that out of the way, Right mouse click 'computer'
Select 'manage' | 'Local Users and Groups' | (all in tree on the left)

Select Users folder
Shift focus to the detail pane on right. You should see 'guest'
If the guest account has an icon [arrow pointing down], it is disabled. This is a default setting in most systems. Not a good idea to activate it coz it leaves a door open for hackers.

Right click 'guest' and select 'properties'. On the general tab, you should see a check box next to the line [Account is disabled]

Enable/Disable per your pleasure. Click 'ok' back to main screen.

Right click 'guest' again. This time, select the first menu item - 'Set Password'.
Populate with your desired password. Remember it lest you are doomed to go through the whole process again.

Need to set up a second user on my laptop


click on START, choose control panel, click on user accounts near the bottom of choices, and set up a 'guest account'. Or another user with personal icon and password. assuming you have the 'administrator' passworded access to the laptop. your 'guest', or new non-administrative access member will have no rights to access your private files, unless you choose to share them. this is for XP.
good luck!

No Icons show up


When you have your desktop up & displayed, click the right mouse button & it will bring up a menu. Hover your mouse above the "Arrange Icons By" option and it will bring up a sub menu. If the "Show Desktop Icons" option does not have a check mark to the left of it, that is your problem. If there is no check mark, navigate down to it and click on it with your left mouse button and that will make your icons display.

Icons and Start tool bar disappearing every few seconds


Sounds like the explorer.exe process might be restarting. Open Task manager and keep refreshing the processes to see if explorer.exe disappears/re-appears.
